When, why and how

Course Description

Existing use rights play an important role in town planning. They are protected by law and the planning schemes, yet they are imbued with uncertainty and complexity.

In this workshop, you will learn the broad principles of existing use rights including understanding

  • What is an existing use right and an accrued right.
  • How existing use rights are established and lost.
  • The nature and scope of these rights.
  • The mechanisms the planning scheme, the Act and councils use to regulate an existing use right.
Audience: Statutory and strategic planners at all levels
